For this year’s fair, Audi teamed up with design stars Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram to construct the R18 Ultra Chair – a super-lightweight seat modeled after the Audi R18 Ultra race car, winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans race held in France.
The wealth of things to see at Design Miami/ 2012 is enough to stun and entrance anyone who visits the fair. Such a large amount of design history, thinking and practice requires events tailored to contextualize, explain, and explore – and Design Miami/ has the programming needed to accomplish this.
Weighing just less than 5 pounds, the R18 Ultra Chair is at the forefront of lightweight furniture. Designed by Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram, the sleek and sharply angled chair was developed in collaboration with Audi’s Lightweight Design Center. Design Miami/ 2012 is pleased to feature the chair’s team of designers and engineers, who will be offering an intimate look at the production of this groundbreaking work.
